Mid Autumn Moon Festival
After the rush of getting set for school – treat your children (grandchildren too) to the Mid Autumn Moon Festival.
The shadow puppet performance combines a traditional story, “Change-er Flies to the Moon” with hi-tech projection on our auditorium’s big screen as these production photos show.
Holiday moon cakes, Chinese teas, crafts and a fall plant tour in English and Mandarin complete the program.
